I feel as if I am living inside a snow globe--here it is May and it's snowing hard all over the tulips in the yard. The trees have new leaves, the ants are thriving, the grass is greening, and snow is swirling around like it's been shaken out of some gigantic snow machine. When I open the back door to let the dogs out, they take one quick look, see the snow falling AGAIN and hurry back under the table. Their eyes say No way! Simon had his Spring Is In The Air program at school this morning, sang and danced with the the other kindergarteners, wore a big blue necktie over his white shirt. Every afternoon when he comes home he changes into his Batman clothes, cape with bat-ears and all, and is Batman for the rest of the day. Seems impossible to look out the window today and know that school will be out for the summer in a few weeks. Napowrimo is finally over, so now I can go clean my house without feeling I really should be doing something else!
My new book from Amazon came: the left-handed story, Writing and the Writer's Life, by Nancy Willard. An eclectic collection of essays. I have become an Amazon addict. It gives me something to look forward to. Besides blogging, I mean.
